Seahawks pull off improbable backdoor cover against Cowboys

Dallas receiver Allen Hurns was in surgery for a broken left ankle, a gruesome injury sustained in the first quarter of the Cowboys' 24-22 wild-card win over Seattle. "I'm proud of my guys". Dallas will play at the Los Angeles Rams next weekend if the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Chicago Bears on Sunday, and the Cowboys will face the New Orleans Saints if the Bears win. Hurns had just 20 catches for 295 yards this season, but Dallas isn't particularly deep at receiver after Amari Cooper. The Cowboys struck first with a 39-yard field goal. Because Janikowski was injured, Seattle went for two in a situation where teams nearly always go for the extra point. The Seahawks scored a touchdown on fourth down and then converted on the two-point attempt after deciding not to go with Dickson on the extra point. Ezekiel Elliott ran for a 1-yard TD to give Dallas a 17-14 lead. He limped off the field as the Cowboys took a 10-6 lead into the half.

The Seahawks got off to a slow start with Russell Wilson passing for -8 yards in the first quarter.

Janikowski, 40, winced and grabbed at the back of his kicking leg right after the kick. Two short runs and an incompletion forced them to settle for a 27-yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski, however, tying things up at 3-all.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (4) runs into the end zone for a touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks during the second half of the NFC wild-card NFL football game in Arlington, Texas, Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019. The Seahawks walked in for an easy 2-point conversion to make it 24-22. Wilson was 18 of 27 for 233 yards, with Lockett getting four catches for 120 yards.
